Updated to reflect modern advances in the techniques and methodology of drug stereochemistry, the Third Edition comprehensively presents all aspects of chiral drugs from scientific, academic, governmental, industrial, and clinical points of view. This stand-alone text covers the lifespan of stereochemistry, from its early history, including an overview of terms and concepts, to the current drug development process, legal and regulatory issues, and the new stereoisomeric drugs.

Key Features:-

  • The use of enzymes in the synthesis and resolution of enantiometrically pure compounds in drug disco
  • How stereochemistry impacts decisions made in the Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion, a
